Unbundling the JavaScript module bundler

12:30/13:10

Today we all use Webpack (right?), but I remember a time when you had to manually copy-paste JavaScript files to create a package of libraries you could use in your frontend application. Many years have passed since then and the landscape of module bundlers evolved significantly along with the evolution of JavaScript and Node.js. In this talk, I will try to uncover some JavaScript module history and illustrate how a module bundler actually works, so that the next time you will use Webpack you will be able to understand what's going on behind the scenes.

Solution Architect - Vectra AI

I was born in 1987, the same year Super Mario Bros was released in Europe, which, by chance is my favourite game! I started coding at the age of 12, hacking away with my father's old i386 armed only with MS-DOS and the QBasic interpreter and since then I have been professionally a software developer for more than 10 years. I am currently a Solution Architect at Vectra AI in Dublin where I am automating the hunt for cyberattackers. I love the fullstack web, Node.js & Serveless so I co-authored "Node.js design patterns" (http://amzn.to/1ZF279B), launched fstack.link and Serverlesslab.com
